Select the "Search" (top right hand menu option in blue) link. Select "Advanced Search". Then type in your user ID in "user name"; and then "Search Now". You could also select posts by a specific term (greater than four letters) that you recall being in the body of your post.


I LOVE SEARCH.

What about threads I have posted in? I want to be able to click somewhere to show me new replies to threads I've posted in because I can't always remember exactly where I posted.

Select the top right, blue link, in the menu bar "Quick Links". Then select "Subscribed Threads". All threads to which you have replied and or subscribed are listed.

Thank you Pat, but it says "folder empty" So do I have to subscribe to threads? Because the threads I posted in are not showing up there... (and I know there are new replies)

I was afraid you'd ask that!

I believe that you may have to change your user options. Select "Quick Links" and "Edit Options". Then, in the second section "Messaging & Notification", you can select if you do not want to automatically subscribe to threads. It may be the default?? You can change it. Mine is set on "no email notification", but I do have threads listed in my "Subscribed Threads" link.


HTH, and if I am wrong, someone tell this woman!! And I'll not chime in trying to be helpful. They say 'folks in the South will help you, even if they don't know the answer'.

Another option to subscribe is to select "Thread Tools" at the top of an open thread. And then select "Subscribe to this thread" and "Add subscription". But, it happens automatically for me with the above options. (I think. )
